I created this site as a place to house some of my black and white work processed to my personal taste. The work of photographer Michael Kenna has been a big influence on my shooting style.
Since so many people ask the question, I mostly use Fujifilm X or Canon full frame cameras with Zeiss lenses. I love the look Zeiss lenses create. I process in Lightroom, Photoshop and Silver Effex Pro. Almost all of the images have a slight tint added to give them a metallic edge.
Most of the images in the Limestone Fields gallery were shot in The Burren, Co. Clare, Ireland - probably my favorite place on the planet. Thousands of years ago settlers cleared the trees from the land and the thin layer of soil eroded revealing huge slabs of limestone underneath.
The Celtic Cross images were captured in two locations. Glendalough, Co. Wicklow, Ireland and Clonmacnoise in the center of the country. Both are ancient monastic settlements set in the most fantastic locations. The monks liked their sweeping vistas.
Silver Linings were shot in a variety of locations. It's a catchall gallery for images that I like but don't fit in a category of their own. The name comes from the fact that a lot of subjects that attract my attention tend to be scenes with big skies full of clouds.
The Beyond the Wall gallery was shot in Iceland. The name comes from the HBO show Game of Thrones. Some of northern scenes in that show were shot in Iceland mostly around Myvatn, I believe, on the northern part of the island.
The word Grianghrafadóireacht in the title is the Irish word for photography and, coincidentally, at 20 letters the longest word in the language that I know. We like our vowels. It's not as difficult to pronounce as it looks. Green-graph-a-door-ukt will get you very close.
